Oakland Community College Announcement

It is my pleasure to announce the appointment of Peter Provenzano to the position of Chancellor beginning January 1, 2018. The Board of directors voted unanimously in favor of Mr. Provenzano as successor in the position of Chancellor. 

As many of you know, Mr. Provenzano has been employed by OCC in an executive leadership capacity since 2014.  He was first appointed as Vice Chancellor of Administrative Services and more recently, he has served as Interim Chancellor since May 2017. 

The unanimous decision to offer the position to Mr. Provenzano reflects the Board’s confidence both in Mr. Provenzano’s proven leadership abilities and his vision for the future.  With Mr. Provenzano’s work as Interim Chancellor, the Board expects a seamless transition and ongoing stability across the College.  

With educational institutions facing significant change, Mr. Provenzano brings a proven track record of leadership and success. His commitment to student success and collaborative partnerships reflects Oakland Community College’s strategic direction and the ongoing vision for excellence and best practices. 

I hope you will join me in congratulating Mr. Provenzano and supporting him in this new role.

John P. McCulloch, Chair
OCC Board of Trustees
